These are the specs:-

Nvidia Geforce GTX 275
Antec Nine Hundred Ultimate Gamer
1TB Samsung F1
Corsair DDR3 2X240

The Dvd writer is ok but im planning on upgrading in feb. I'm also going to add another 4GB of memory, gaming keyboard and gaming mouse.

Recent purchases

I got paid a week ago by Student Loans and I've already spent all of it. I know I wasn't supposed to do it but it had to be done.

New Balance Feral Creations (Lion Heads)

I ordered these 3 weeks ago and they only arrived a couple of days ago. These were designed in collaboration with Left Foot of Singapore and my favourite pair out of the pack. There were only 660 pairs released and they were totally worth not sleeping to order them.



Adidas Rod Laver X Wood Wood

These are just simple and go with pretty much any colour. I was going to buy the Solebox pair but I reached my budget.



Apart from these two kicks i also bought a pair of April 77 selvage Jeans, Levis Special Edition 505's, Undefeated X Masterpiece Tee, Stussy x Reas Tee and a Stussy Worldwide Varsity

Ozzie's Music Showcase Vol. 6

A pair of albums that impressed me recently, you should be used to this by now; short descriptions and selected tracks are waiting below.

The xx - xx

One of the best albums of the year, I said this about a few albums this year, but they all deserved it. This is one is no different. This Boy/Girl band made and amazingly innovative album, that sounds complete and does not contain any fillers. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.



KRS-One & Buckshot - Survival Skills

Two aging rappers, or more accurately two hip-hop pioneers. These two uncles diss wack MCs, talk about great they are, and preach a lot. The album contains production from Black Milk, whose dope as hell, and features more than half a dozen other artists, such as: Talib kweli, Mary J Blige, K'NAAN and Pharoahe Monch.

All sounds good, but unlike the album above, this album requires some skipping, but don't let that put you off, cos over all it is pretty good.

Modest Mouse - King Rat

I am not trying to spam you guys with videos, but this one is really good. It is by the amazing Modest Mouse and is directed by the late great Heath Ledger. Most of this video was done just before he died. It is a great track and if you don't have their latest album you are gonna stay losing.

Ozzie's Music Showcase Vol. 5 - The Veterans' Albums

In the fifth edition, I will be showcasing two of the most anticipated hip-hop albums and one album everyone forgot about.

Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx PT II

"See these fans can't resist the rush, they Wu-Tang for life
Scarred for life, they can't forget the cuts" Method Man


The follow up to Rae's 1995 classic, the first one is considered to be one of the best hip-hop albums of all time, it is one of favourites as well. This explains why it took a very long time for this album to drop, Raekown tried his best to make this a classic as well and he succeeds at that. This album belongs in the mid 90's, it shits all over the competition, it is pure hip-hop, pure Wu-Tang, it is the project that managed to reunite the clan.

The production is mean and raw, and with the likes of RZA, J Dilla, The Alchemist, Dr Dre and Pete Rock behind the boards, it is no surprise. In addition, all guest verses on this album are fire. Do yourself a favor and buy this album.


Jay-Z - The Blueprint 3

With all the hype, A-list producers and guests, you would think this project can't go wrong. False. This album is just slightly above average at best, like most things involving the new KanYe. Instead of doing good hip-hop Hov tries to 'push boundaries', brag about his status in hip-hop and his new BFFs (Obama and Oprah).

Most of the production fails to impress me, however, out of 15 tracks I like 5, so I can't really co-sign this album. But it is worth a listen or two , just make sure you delete 2/3 of the album, so you don't have to skip all the time. A decent effort.


Wu-Tang - Chamber Music

Although this is technically not a Wu Tang album, it is endorsed by them and RZA is the executive producer. It has the old WU sound in it and feature several members of the Wu-Tang Clan collaborating with New York hip hop veterans.

Most of the production is done using live instrumentation mixed with classic soul and kung fu imagery. Check it out.

Teens & Coffee


A funny interesting 'article' on teen, Starbucks and coffee, it kinda disses Moose and I, but I don't think I qualify in that category (Venti Americano is my usual).

But Here you go anyway. Tell me what you think.

Dope Ad

Jay's new album might be a bit of a shit sandwich, but that does not take away anything from this dope album advert, in it Jay recreates all his previous album covers.
